Josefin & Florin
“Takes the level of reflection to a higher level as it tackles both, how we are different yet similar in an elegant and subtle manner.“
“The strong performances and central protagonists carry the structural complexity quite perfectly. It‘s hard to take ones eyes off the series.“
The great moose migration
“A simple, elegant online live stream that was thankfully available at a time of great national hardship. The multiple camera angles, a chat function and extreme responsiveness to user needs makes this project stand out.“
Gold fever - the quiet heist at the Royal Coin Cabinet
“This complex story is compelling. The pace is deftly handled with interviews, archive and actuality with very good photography and sound design. This true crime story is expertly revealed in the genre with narrative revelations and setbacks structured to heighten suspense. This production engages the viewer in each of the intriguing narrative strands.“
